When it comes to Home security, the hardware a consumer chooses could make all the difference. Be aware of hardware quality to make an informed decision on your home security.
While a monitored home security system is still a good choice for home owners (due to discounts on insurance and police response time), the hardware offered by the various companies offering installation and service can be still sub-standard security wise.
For example, the main entry lock chosen by most security vendors of late, while one of the most affordable that can be controlled remotely (even purchased outside of a security contract), is incredibly easy to compromise. (don't ask us how, just enter your front door lock brand into a YouTube search with "how to defeat ...." in front of it.)
Also, camera quality makes a huge difference as to whether having survelliance will even make a difference in deterring or identifying an intruder. (We recommend 1080p pixel quality or higher for clear identification purposes.)
It's true, budget has an impact on the amount consumers can afford to invest in home security services. However, Locksmiths and other security professionals often offer free security surveys and tips that will help guide decisions on hardware when approaching a monitored security vendor. Keep in mind that each company usually sells only one brand of hardware... do your research first, talk to a qualified hardware professional and then make a decision.
